Is this appeal for a donation legitimate?

Original post made by Kate, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Mar 25, 2008

Today we received an appeal for a donation to the March of Dimes. On the form inside, the return address Is a P.O. Box in Los Angeles. But the envelope has the money returned to a PO Box in Decatur, Illinois.

I thought that neighborhoods had solicitorfor for the March of Dimes iike the fund drives for the American Cancer Society, Leukemia, etc.

Any opinions on this? I don't think I will not send any money although I certainly support the March of Dimes, originally started to combat polio.

The March of Dimes was set up to wipe out polio. That has been done. Now it becomes another fund raiser for a cause. I think the employees of the MoD wanted to keep their jobs.
